( –  On Wednesday, a new survey by The Washington Post/Schar School found that in battleground states voters trust former President Donald Trump over President Biden when it comes to handling threats to democracy. 

The poll included respondents from across six swing states, as well as “deciders,”, a subgroup that is believed to be instrumental in deciding the results of the election. According to the result, 38 percent of those respondents believe that when it comes to handling threats to the U.S. democracy Trump is a better option, while only 29 percent thought the same of Biden. The remaining 23 percent did not believe either would be better. 

Around 60 percent of the group also claimed that they were unsatisfied with how the U.S. democracy was currently working. Those who belong to the subgroups are people who voted in the 2016 and 2020 elections and are under the age of 25. It also includes people who changed who they supported between the 2016 and 2020 elections. 

Within all swing states, it was found that 44 percent of voters stated that they believed Trump would be better for protecting democracy, while 33 percent argued that Biden was best. Around 16 percent claimed that they did not trust either, while 7 percent argued that both were trusted equally. 

Close to three-quarters of “deciders” argued that they think Trump is not going to accept the results of the 2024 presidential election if he loses, while 33 percent held the same stance for Biden. Finally, close to half of the respondents claimed that Trump would attempt to be a dictator if he wins, while 15 percent said the same of Biden.
